Quite probably your battery is not fully charged or may just be no good.

SOURCE: how to install starter motor
Most of the time a standard starter motor works fine with a stroker motor. The stroke of the motor has nothing to do with it being harder to start but the compression does. If you're running 10:1 compression, you may need a stronger starter motor. However is I just had the engine built, I wouldn't mess with the starter until I had to. I've built lots of 89" Evo's with 10:1 compression and the stock starter started them all just fine. Starters are expensive and I wouldn't replace the stock unit until I had to.
To change the motor, you'll have to remove the outer primary so you can take the starter jackshaft loose. Disconnect the battery first. I know you would like to keep all your fingers. Then, from the right side, remove the exhaust system and everything else that might be in your way. Take the battery cable loose from the starter motor at it's connector. There are two large bolts that hold the starter in, remove them and the starter comes right off.

The first thing to do is have the battery tested. Take it out and take somewhere that can do a "load test" on the battery. Just because the voltmeter says it has 12 volts, that doesn't mean that it has that much when a load is put on the battery. You could have a shorted cell in it.
Next, if it sounds like an air impact in that it is engaging, disengaging, and doing it all over again, it sounds like the hold in coil is bad. You could take the starter out and take it to a dealer and have them check it or if there's a starter repair shop close by they could check it out. More than likely, if the dealer was doing the job, he'd simply replace the starter if the battery is good.
To remove the starter, disconnect the battery, drain the primary, and remove the primary cover. Take the small bolt out of the starter jackshaft and remove the jackshaft. Sometimes I've seen it where you had to take the snap ring out of the center of the clutch and loosen the clutch nut so that it could slip outward just a bit. The nut has LEFT HANDED THREADS ON IT. When you take the jackshaft out, there is a coupling on it. Make sure you mark which way it comes out so you can get it back in the same way.
Now, on the other side, remove the exhaust system and anything else that may be in the way of getting the starter off. There are two large bolts that hold the starter in. Remove these two bolts and the battery cable and the starter will come free.

Sounds like the battery isn't charged enough to power the starter.
Take the battery off and charge it properly with a proper battery charger.
Refit and it should be fine.
If not, it's new battery time.
